Can someone explain what this should taste like? Never had Zombie Dust and I'm on my 2nd glass of this and not sure what to think about it.

I get lots if citrus up front, tropical fruit in the end. Some caramel sweetness. Aroma of tropical fruit/orange/citrus. Everyones palate is different, you may check out beeradvocate or ratebeer to see what others have to say.

Will definitely keep on making this every so often to keep some in the fridge.

Brewed a Batch of this last Saturday and had my first hydrometer sample a week later. 1.018 very close to the final gravity.
I will let it sit for another 3 weeks to clean up before dry hopping in the keg.


In the meantime, I figured that I would develop a label.... keeping with the zombie theme of course.



The artwork was created by Spencer777 from deviantart. Thanks

Brewed up a PM version of this on Saturday:
6.00 lb Extra Light Dry Extract
1.00 lb Munich Malt - 10L
0.50 lb Carapils
0.50 lb Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L
0.50 lb Melanoiden Malt
0.75 oz Citra (First Wort Hop)
1.00 oz Citra (20 min)
1.00 oz Citra (15 min)
1 Whirlfloc Tablet (15min)
1.00 oz Citra (10 min)
1.00 oz Citra (5 min)
1.00 oz Citra (1 min)
1 Package Re-hyrdated US-05.

Plan to primary for 1 week and rack to secondary for 2 weeks. Will dry hop with 3 oz. of Citra for 7 days and then bottle.

If I brew this again or any brew with this amount of hops (this was my 3rd ever batch) definitely using a hop bag. My siphon kept getting clogged when trying to rack to my primary, or will simply pour into primary with a strainer in the bucket to catch the hop leavin's.

I'm planning on brewing this version when my citra shipment gets here. How exactly did you do the first wort hop additions using extract? I've found a couple of ways of doing it on the net, but not exactly sure about the process yet. Thanks!

Also, has anyone in here had a great success with the wy1968? Thinking of using that instead of the safales.

You could just steep the FWH with your specialty grains. As for the yeast, someone recently reported favorable results with 1968. I haven't got mine using it brewed yet, but I don't think you will go wrong with either.

I add my DME when I'm done steeping pre-boil.
I did the FWH when the DME was mixed in.
